Beams in car accident

COLLINGWOOD AFL star Dayne Beams has been hospitalised after a car accident in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

Beams spent Thursday night in hospital after suffering minor injuries.

“Collingwood can confirm that Dayne Beams was involved in a motor vehicle accident yesterday afternoon,” the Magpies said in a statement.

“Dayne was admitted to hospital with minor injuries from the incident. He remained in hospital overnight.”

Beams stepped away from the AFL indefinitely in December to deal with mental health issues.

He returned to Collingwood from Brisbane in the 2018 trade period and played nine games in 2019.

Beams did not feature after round 11 last year, with the 30-year-old taking a break to concentrate on his mental health, while he also had hip and shoulder surgery.
